IAP Management Vlan on Native vlan or not Native vlan?

Hi everyone,

Iam planning to deploy an instant iap cluster.I have been doing a

lot of reading with regard to aruba iap in this forum.In order to deploy a cluster why should the iaps be in the native vlan or it is not mandatory?Some say that in order to get ip from an external dhcp iaps must be in untagged vlan that is  vlan1 by default,If this is the case than why?Can the iaps be on a different vlan tagged on.What is ment by management uplink vlan.There is a lot of confusion about management vlan,tagged or untagged etc.

Any help will be appreciated.

Re: IAP Management Vlan on Native vlan or not Native vlan?

The easiest way to deploy Instant APs is to have the IAPs get dhcp ip addresses from the untagged VLAN.  This is considered VLAN 1 in the IAP.  If want your APs to get their DHCP ip address from a tagged VLAN on the switch port, instead you would configure the uplink VLAN to match whatever you want that VLAN to be so that on a trunk port IAPs will get their ip addresses from that tagged VLAN, instead:

Re: IAP Management Vlan on Native vlan or not Native vlan?

Hi

assuming I use a tagged VLAN what happens if I add a new AP with a factory default configuration  will it be able to attach to the existing cluster ?  this new AP will not have an Uplink VLAN configured

How can we can configure this new AP ?  by using Command line and enter manualy the UPLINK VLAN

Yes.

 

For a distributed deployment, dhcp options on the non-management VLAN would point the IAP to Airwave, where it would get its configuration with the uplink vlan.

Thanks for your answer

If i Understant well, the New acces point will be able to get the informations of the Uplink port by using Airwave ( TAGGED VLAN)

You will need also to reboot the access point to get new IP in the TAGGED vlan ?
